to remove three roundabouts. it now involves going over an overhead bridge and through the pedestrianised area of town. much safer, and even though it adds 1/2k onto the journey, it doesn't take noticeably longer. i'd rather ride slowly to avoid running over pedestrians (not many around at the relevant times anyway) than riding slowly hoping not to be knocked over on the roundabout. anyone else tweeked their commute to reduce the risk?
